Paradise For Sale: Inside F. Scott Fitzgerald's Historic Home

by Geneva Hutcheson · June 23, 2016

Before Fitzgerald became the face of the roaring twenties, he was a sad boy at Princeton who got cut from the football team on the first day of practice, ran a musical-comedy club, was put on academic probation, and chased a Chicago socialite who barely reciprocated his melodramatic daily letters. After the lovely Zelda dumped him for being poor he holed up in his parents house and repaired car roofs while writing his first novel, the highly autobiographical This Side of Paradise. This house, where Amory Blaine first cried, "I know myself but that is all," is now up for sale (for just $650K!). So, if you've been looking to move into a modestly priced four bedroom reeking of Jazz age angst, we've found your new home! Click through for a rare look inside.
